> This is a fun hack that any webmaster can perform during those quiet times. Every agency has lots of departments. With the big agencies, each department runs their own MIS operation. Adopt an agency and then periodically run a link checker against all the departments, then send the head of the agency a list with the number of broken links, ranked by department. Oh, and send a copy of the list to the chairman of the congressional oversight committee. And to each department head in the...
> Access to knowledge is a fundamental right, a right that has been sadly perverted by our copyright and patent systems. Joining copyright and patent as the third estate of the privatization of the commons is spectrum. In 2002, I ran cross a speech by Dr. Preston Marshall, head of the Advanced Technology Office at DARPA. Dr. Marshall said "according to our initial measurements, on average, only 2 percent of the spectrum is actually in use in the United States at any given moment, even...
Recorded live on location at Code for America, this town hall deals with the question of Incorporation by Reference, a legal technique where private standards become federal law, available only for those with sufficient means to be informed citizens.

Speech by Nicholas Negroponte at the WSIS Plenary in Tunisia. He only had 5 minutes to state his piece and unfortunately the first 2.5 minutes of said piece were not captured on tape here. Negroponte is on the left channel, a translator on the right. Negroponte also gave a press conference with the Secretary-General. Here is where you will hear: "You need one pencil per child and the pencil of today is a laptop computer connected to the Internet." Topics: Internet Governance, laptop, child, pencil
> Sometimes the best way to get government to do something is just do it yourself. That's a strategy I previously used in posting data from the SEC on the Internet. I ran the database for a couple of years, then put a little sign up saying the service would terminate in 60 days. The SEC got it right away that free markets are based on information and started running the service. I tried the same trick on the Patent Office, but that is a much less clueful bunch when it comes to subversive...
> They gave me 15 minutes to do 10 hacks at OSCON and I have to admit that by the time I hit Hack 8 I was starting to pant, so I let Jon Stewart do this one. This hack is pretty basic, basic stuff and probably doesn't need saying, but if enough people talk about clueless things that happen in government, then after a while everybody else gets the picture. Jon Stewart and the blogosphere did a brilliant job of annotating the seminal Internets Are a Series of Tubes Doctrine, helping make net...

> Hack 5 was hard. This one is easy. Section 508 is a federal law that says government websites should meet accessibility standards. There are a few loopholes, but they have to at least make an effort. The cool thing about Section 508 is that each agency has to name a Section 508 Coordinator and publish that information. So, go get a tool like Checky or Web Developer and adopt your favorite federal agency. They're required by law to be responsive, so they'll be delighted to hear from you.

> Hack Number 1 was about being allowed to attend meetings by qualifying as a journalist. Sometimes though, you have to be an aggrieved party to get anybody to listen. I was reading BoingBoing one morning and they were talking about an exclusive deal the Smithsonian Institution had cut with Showtime to do films that used the archives or the staff. Ken Burns was upset. The whole deal was all very vague and hush hush and the contract governing the deal was a secret. That seemed strange, so I...
